Secondly, this was not a life threatening emergency. Call the non-emergency number if you feel you must report it. Calling 911 diverts critical resources from situations which truly are a matter of life and death. Non-emergency 911 calls tie up the lines for callers who legitimately do need immediate, urgent help. In fact, in most states, calling 911 for anything other than a true emergency is illegal and can result in criminal penalties to the caller.
If your neighbors are having a loud party late at night and you need the police to come talk to them, use the non-emergency number. If someone is breaking the leash law and letting their dog roam free, call the non-emergency number. On the other hand, if someone is breaking into your house or having a heart attack, or you just witnessed someone getting shot, you call 911. See the difference??
It's also probably not a good idea to go all vigilante and follow the car. Do the police know you intend to do that?
